Recently Pa was taken ill and, as he is getting on in years, the doctor decided a night in the hospital was in order.

"I'm a bit worried," confessed Pa as the nurse fluffed his pillows.  "I read just last week that a man who was in the hospital because of heart trouble and he died of malaria."
"Now see here, Pa," interrupted the nurse.  "I'll have you know that this is a first-rate hospital.  When we treat someone for heart trouble, he dies of heart trouble."
